It’s looking like we are on track for a few cooler nights this week. Aside from a couple of chilly nights last year, we’ve definitely enjoyed some great weather here on Sanibel and Captiva islands. But, I’m not a meteorologist and my forecast only goes 10 days ahead, so I’m going to assume that we are definitely in for at least a few less than comfortable days this winter. Fortunately, we live in a place where we are only briefly forced to run our A/C before we can forget that we even have them for the rest of the year.
I always like to offer some helpful tips in this department, because once you turn them on for the first time this season, you’ll quickly realize just how long you haven’t turned it on as the smell of burning dust spreads through your home. So before you do this, pick a mild day and open your windows for a brief period of time, giving your heater a chance to run before the colds hit. You should get rid of that smell very quickly. This way you will avoid having to turn it on for the first time just before you and your family prepare for bedtime and be forced to endure the smell as you fall asleep.
If you run into any trouble where your heater won’t turn on, blow hot air, or you smell an abnormal amount of burning dust, turn your heater off and call your service provider.
As always, thanks for reading,
